I've completely given up on Hantuchova.

I've been a fan. A Big Fan. When the draws come out, she's the first player i search for and feel out her tournament.
I routed for her, cheered when she won, got sad when she lost.

She's simply not a good enough player to occupy my tennis life anymore.
She loses badly to players who absolutley suck. Cohen-Aloro ? in straights?
Daniela's a shell of what she was and after two miserable years, there was a one month glimmer of hope, and now she's back to the 03, 04 level.

Red dot me all you want, it matters zero to me. Make it bright red.
Daniela will never be back in the top ten, and i'll virtualbet anyone on that.

I wish her luck as always, but i'm moving up my #2,3,4 and 5 favorite players to 1,2,3 and 4.
So come on Venus, Serena, Elena, Maria and Justine. Bring it, like you consistently do.

I understand where you're coming from and i feel the way you do sometimes, but in the end what we as fans and the players have to realize is that tennis is just a game. Sure it's great to be glorified and be successful at any game, but the truth is there are millions of things more important than how Daniela does in a tennis match. i would like her to succeed, because she seems ike a nice smart girl with huge potential, but in the end i'm much more satisfied that she's dealing better with her parents' divorce and her weight, then how she performed at a Tier I tournament.

she's just not good enough for the real real elite...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Lets give Daniela a chance - she has given some really good results this year :

Three wins at the Hopman Cup

1 semifinal in Doha, losing to eventual champion Sharapova
2 quarterfinals; Tokyo, losing in two tight tiebreaks and Dubai (losing to Serena)

Third round at Australian Open, losing to Dementieva in three tight sets

Second Round at Tier2 Sydney

Third round at Indian Wells

That looks impressive to me and are results to be proud off to Daniela

I routed for her especially because i felt very bad for her during the 'weight loss' travesty and how the anorexia rumors made her quite upset.
That's why i routed for her, not because of her potential, or talent necessarily.

I just feel that i'm now wasting my time with her.

If she doesn't care about her tennis, why should I.

Obviously she does care. She cares too much. She hasn't responded well to pressure which is a huge part of succeeding at this level. Also she doesn't have the power, speed or shots to be in the top 10. Still she shouldn't be losing to the Cohen-Aloros

hantuchova and dokic should follow in the path of Kournikova and cash in on their good looks before they are completelly forgotten as their tennis game has gone awry

I say, hats off to Daniela! She obviously has some *severe* issues to deal with. Eating disorders are no joke! I'm just happy to see her out there, healthy, and playing better than last year!

And then she was back, that goddess-like creature, back to torment the souls of the good and distribute free samples of bacon to the bad.
